  2. I download Anaconda for python 3.6

    In order to activate permanently your custom environment, you can create a anaconda prompt shortcut which new target.

Method 1

with an installation of the last anaconda you can create an environment just like Cleb explained or downgrade python :

conda install python=3.6.0

With this second solution, you may encounter some incompatibility issues with other packages. I tested it myself and did not encounter any issue but I guess it depends on the packages you installed.

If you don’t want to handle environments or face incompatibilities issues, you can download any Anaconda version. For example, Anaconda3-5.1.0-XXX or Anaconda3-5.2.0-XXX provides python 3.6 (the suffix XXX depends on your OS).

To know which python is provided in an anaconda package, you can visit the Release notes page. It provides the updates for the all anaconda versions. Find yours and look for the line

python A.B.C -> X.Y.Z

where A.B.C is the previous version and X.Y.Z is the updated python version.

Method 2

this solution is working for me on windows 10,

From the anaconda prompt :

  1. Create a custom environnement and specify the repository channel to find the version (in my case 3.6.5)
    conda create --name py365 python=3.6.5 --channel conda-forge
  1. Activate the new environment
    conda activate py365

But the activation won’t be permanent, you will need to activate each time you start the anaconda prompt

  1. Create a shortcut to Anaconda prompt with your choosen environment

In order to activate permanently your custom environment, you can create a anaconda prompt shortcut which new target. Go to

C:\Users\Your_Name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Anaconda3 (64-bit)

And Copy and rename the file Anaconda Prompt (Anaconda3) to Anaconda 3.6.5. Then right-click on the new file and click on “Properties”.

Then change the target :

%windir%\System32\cmd.exe "/K" C:\Users\Your_Name\Anaconda3\Scripts\activate.bat C:\Users\Your_Name\Anaconda3

to

%windir%\System32\cmd.exe "/K" C:\Users\Your_Name\Anaconda3\Scripts\activate.bat C:\Users\Your_Name\Anaconda3\envs\py365

(be aware to change “Your_Name” by your “real” name )

Finally, if you go to your Windows Start menu, you will see your new shortcut “Anaconda 3.6.5” which launch the Anaconda Prompt with your choosen environment !
